I truly cannot believe the year is over. It seems like just yesterday I was putting on my sparkly gold dress and heading out to ring in 2010 with Anna and GB (and starting the year off right with my head in a toilet, but we don’t have to focus on that!).
I feel like the year has flown by so fast, but at the same time, I’ve done so many things in the past few months. I guess that’s one of the best parts about having a blog – it’s like a diary where I can look back and see what I was thinking or doing (or, let’s face it, eating or buying) on any certain day in my life.
A year ago at this time, I was in a completely different place. I felt uninspired, bored and disillusioned, I was still getting over a heartbreak, I missed my friends across the country something fierce, and I had just quit my job and had no idea what to do next. Life wasn’t miserable, but I felt stuck.
And now here I am, looking back, and I have to say, things worked out pretty well. I have a great new job. My heart has healed and I’m ready for love again. I had the opportunity to go new places and have new experiences and meet new friends, some of whom I already cannot imagine my life without.
And best of all, I started writing again. And wonder of all wonders, people actually wanted to read what I had to say! It never ceases to thrill or amuse me when someone tells me they love reading my blog, and I hope you’ll stick around. (After all, there are so many more pink things and trips to Israel and new restaurants to talk about!) Without a doubt, writing is the thing that makes me happiest, and the fact that I’ve spent this whole year doing just that is surely one of the reasons why I have a smile on my face today.
I will always remember 2010 as being the year that I finally felt happy and settled in my post-college, grownup-girl-in-LA life. My life may not be perfect – it’s filled with far too many department store tantrums and cupcake binges and road rage for that – but it’s mine and I love it :)
Happy, happy new year! I can’t wait to see what adventures 2011 will bring!
My interests include pretending I'm southern (hey ya'll!), eating sushi, getting my hair blown out, making fun of everything and everyone, and spending every single dollar I can on sparkly things. If those sound like things you can get down with, I think we're going to get along just fine!
